Abstract

This thesis is a chronological account of the lives of Chinese individuals and communities in the Bathurst district between 1849 and 1954, which reinscribes the lives and experiences of Chinese people into the local history narrative. It examines the involvement of Chinese immigrants in the district, from its role as a base for pastoral expansion, to the gold rushes, to its establishment as a centre for vegetable growing in New South Wales. The findings show Chinese were key players in each of these phases of Bathurst’s colonial settlement.
